KAFKA CASTLE in Sant Pere de Ribes, Spain by RICARDO BOFILL TALLER DE ARQUITECTURA

 
June 1st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: RICARDO BOFILL TALLER DE ARQUITECTURA

Identification on the part of some members of the Taller de Arquitectura with certain ideas of the Archigram movement, and enthusiasm for experimentation with geometry and its application possibilities to housing, are two factors given tangible form in Kafka’s Castle. This apartment building, on a hill overlooking the bay of Sitges, is fruit of the clustering of cubes around nuclei of vertical circulation. Each cube contains a minimalist environment: living-dining room or bathroom-bedroom, articulated on different levels. The color of the façades, chosen from a range of blues, expresses the intention to merge the building with its natural background, the sky.

Glass Farmhouse in Oregon by Olson Kundig

 
June 1st, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Olson Kundig

Surrounded by wheat fields on a high-altitude plateau stand a small glass house and a solid, traditional barn. The owners, inspired by Philip Johnson’s Glass House, wanted a refuge that opens up to the prairie and mountains. The structures are conveniently close to each other and enjoy a sense of isolation at the end of a long country road. The roof of the wood-frame barn, which houses farm equipment below and guest rooms above, was inspired by the local vernacular and is echoed in the shed roof of the glass house.

Authoral Restaurant in Brasília, Brazil by BLOCO Arquitetos

 
June 1st, 2017 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: BLOCO Arquitetos

The “South Wing” was the first residential zone to be built in Brasília´s original plan. The local commerce typology in that zone is defined by two stories buildings connected to each other side by side along the commercial streets between the “superquadras” (superblocks). They face the street in one side and the residential superblocks on the other side. Lucio Costa´s idea was to connect both sides through the buildings. However, over the years the most of the owners shut themselves away from the residential area, closing their “backsides” with fences or blind walls, turning their facades exclusively to the street.

In stone, fire department margreid in South Tyrol, Italy by bergmeisterwolf architekten

Article source: bergmeisterwolf architekten

A stone wall is the stage backdrop for the new fire department in margreid, along the wine road. three large caverns in a mountain, connected by a crossing tunnel, serve as the inner rooms of the station. two caverns are used for trucks and one for administrative work. a meter from the mountain, a concrete wall, kinked and dyed black, mirrors the angle of the mountain wall. the three caverns dock on to the steel concrete wall that functions both as fall protection and as an architectural element of the fire department. the material chosen was concrete: stable, strong, and mighty; the dark color was achieved by adding beech coal dust, making the concrete look like burnt wood.

Delta Shelter in Washington, by Olson Kundig

 
May 31st, 2017 by Sanjay Gangal

Article source: Olson Kundig

Delta Shelter – a 1,000 square-foot cabin – is essentially a steel-clad box on stilts that can be completely shuttered when the owner is away. The 200 square-foot footprint of the house rises above a 40-acre, 100-year flood plain adjacent to the Methow River. The verticality, coloring and raw nature of the materials used for construction directly respond to the wildness of the setting. The owner sought a compact, easy to maintain, virtually indestructible building to house himself and his friends for fun and adventure in the mountains. With an exterior of steel, the house is virtually indestructible.
